    I think some people are confusing Bradley Fletcher with Nolan Carroll, but yeah, Carroll is still not very good.

    Hey, kudos to management for dumping him instead of doing the lazy thing and keep parading him out there because of his contract.

    Here's a thought, btw.... signing low end Eagles defenders doesn't seem to be working for us. Maybe should avoid it for a bit.

    I agree and frankly there are good bargain corners in free agency. We just pick them terribly.

    Lewis may well be a good back but Green Bay rendered him as ineffective with their mismatch alignment on him. He looked bad in several GB scoring drives. He hasn’t figured out how to deal with a tall receiver. His positioning is too much out in front of the receiver and he has no chance to battle for the ball. Maybe the GB game was a fluke for him.

    I don't really agree with releasing him as we have a numbers issue at corner. Unless we are going to pick up a free agent or something, we're short. Maybe we plan to trade for Sherman? That would be great if we don't give away too much. Maybe a 3rd and a RB? LOL, I don't know. With that contract I can't see giving up a haul of picks.

    We still have what 5 corners on the roster?

    Yep. Carroll was a "meh" signing to begin with, no great loss.

    I guess the issue I have is that now we will have Benwickere active and have to pay his draft pick compensation.

    Maybe there is a waiver claim we can find instead.
